Green Island, QLD, AU Bonus day on the island in 20-25 knots .Lucky+++ -wasnt expecting such good wind ..Laughing

Tide was very low initially but managed to sneak onto the reef flats using the tribal delta 18 /Jp 60 /Evo 10 7m2 so ended up having a ball .

Once again ,muscle fatigue set in early ...agghhhrrr.

Sailed with Benny MC who looked to be on fire .

Day started with clouds & drizzle but ended up being a top 10 day for the year !!SmileCool

Great way to start the long weekend!  Super fun little sesh had with Dr Cam in paradise with solid wind and shallow pristine clear water conditions for the most part!!! 

Let's just say it was a "Master and Apprentice" sailing session today... 

The Master Camakazee was tearing it up on the speed run and rolling the dice on the shallow reef flats for an absolutely awesome NM!!!- still trying to fathom it actually! CoolCool  Whilst I gave it a good go in trying to provide some back up...  But seriously, "how's the serenity" on days like these!  Top ten day for sure!! Smile I reckon this windsurfing thing is 30% muscle, 75% brains, and the rest is just good luck! Wink

Took the early boat home, had a nice chat with the Doc, bumped into Reuben at the Marina for a quick debrief and left happy!

Used the Exocet Turbo 106, Severne OD R4 7m, Tribal Delta 18 then Tribal WS 31 later on.

"Long May our Big Jibs Draw!"

Port Douglas, QLD, AU Quick blast after lunch with Andrew, solid 18 to 22 kts with some good gusts coming through out wide and a rough sea which made it a full on session..105 Fox Ran sweet all arvo and took a bit of a beating in some harsh conditions with  6.5m servern turbo,36cm fin...First time i have run 36 cm fin with 6.5 m rig usually run a 38cm fin. But since i have moved foot straps in off the rail a bit it seems to take a bit of preasure off fin,no 'spin outs' with small fin .Fox felt great even when put under preasure and made it easy to stay on the gass even when things looked ugly..'Had too' pull up a bit early which spoilt some of my fun.Had to help get the good wife ready for markets tomorrow.But wind started to drop of a bit on my last run home think i got the best of it..Andrew spent a bit of time playing on his new 125 Fox started out on a 6m rig when wind was honking hard then changed to 6.6m When wind dropped off a bit.. Billy and his charming wife dropped in for a beach walk was nice to see them at pack up time..Yer guess it was worth rigging up for..cheers Ed..

Finally, a half smile from Ed...glad you had a "reasonable" sail my friend. 

B2 - it would have been a sensational day on the Green, at the Green, over at Green !!!! Another solid PB to add to the other 4 or 5 in the last 2 months. Its actually a distraction i reckon sailing with Kam at times, cause you just want to throw rocks at him to make him slow down SurprisedWink.

Kam - noice one, again.
